Happy New Years and 2011 from the Bass Blog!
Welcome back!! I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season. I’m really looking forward to what is in store for 2011. I feel like this is going to be an exciting year. Foremost, I believe that the upcoming ISB Convention in at San Francisco State University (June 6-11) is going a wonderful event for all attending- and I hope to see many ‘friends of the blog’ there. For the posts and main content of this blog, I look to author more in-depth posts on the doublebass, its performance, pedagogy, and culture. Although I really enjoy posting videos and sharing various links, I will continue to do less of this but will turn to a slightly slower ratio of posts, but alternately more beneficial (hopefully) in terms of content. For many of my students and colleagues I hope to turn this site into a living, breathing resource for the doublebass and it’s community. For those that would like to collaborate I welcome your ideas and suggestions. Please see my Contact page to send me an email.
